Leeds United have released their third kit for the current campaign - and it is maroon.

Leeds United have unveiled a maroon strip to complete their collection for the 2020/21 Premier League campaign.

United's new kit suppliers Adidas last month released the home edition to great success while the green away shirt was a nod to the 1994-96 classic strip made famous by cult hero Tony Yeboah.

The Whites say they have again used history to influence their latest unveiling, by releasing colours used during the club's European success under legendary manager Don Revie.

A press release explained: "Rewind to 1970/71, 50 years ago, Leeds United were about to start a European adventure in the Inter-Cities Fairs Cup, looking for a repeat of glory in 1968.

"Skippered by Billy Bremner, Sarpsborg fell, as did Dynamo Dresden, Sparta Prague, Vitoria Setubal and the famous Liverpool.

"A two-legged final was to begin, the Old Lady, Juventus were next in line for Don Revie’s men.

"The roar that reaches Turin, is ready to be heard again."

Maroon shorts and socks will accompany the top, which Adidas say celebrates the past and "can be worn with pride."

The third strip will go on sale on Thursday (October 1) online and will be available to buy in-store next Monday.
